So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing, I will always fondly remember all the years that we lived near the Anderson family on West Saanich Rd. Working with David and Rena at the Texaco gas Station, going to school with Nancy and Donna, plus all the many hours of hard work that Cathy put in around the farm to make sure we all had our milk and eggs. Your Mom and Dad were truly an inspiration in my life growing up. A life well lived in the service of her family, the wider community and the Lord

A lovely lady has left us. Both Jessie and David were huge supporters of the 4H Community in addition to her major contribution as secretary and entry coordinator for years at the Cobble Hill Fair. They both attended our club awards banquet and after David passed she and Margaret Baird continued joining us. Always with a smile – she will be missed. We send our heartfelt condolences to the family.
